The pandemic has changed a lot of how most people live. Some may find it relieving, while others may consider it overwhelming. Relieving in a way where they get to bond and live with the people they love at home most of the time, and overwhelming in terms of how things quickly change and how odd the new normal feels. We also feel for those who have lost some precious lives because of the virus.
We care about you and your health, which is why we want you to become aware of COVID-19 threats, as we are also following its protocols and daily updates. We get these updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America, and other agencies and resources.
Here are some ways to protect yourself and the people around you from coronavirus:
Maintain good hand hygiene.
Most people only wash their hands whenever they see visible dirt. However, since we are fighting off an invisible threat, it is good to frequently wash your hands with soap and water or even alcohol to maintain their cleanliness. When washing with soap and water, 20-second handwashing should be enough.
Avoid covering your mouth with your hand whenever you cough or sneeze.
Sometimes, people unintentionally touch their eyes or mouth. It is important to avoid using your hands when you cover your mouth whenever you sneeze or cough because you could potentially transfer bacteria or viruses to the people around you.
Stay at home if you’re not feeling well.
Whenever you feel like you have the symptoms of COVID-19, it would be best to stay at home until you finally recover. Through this, it will help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. That one small act can save lives.
Be updated with the news.
Being updated with the new number of cases and the latest information about COVID-19, it is best to get it from reputable and reliable sources. This way, you become more aware of how to prevent yourself and your loved ones from its dangerous threats.
Wear a mask whenever you go out in public.
Wearing a mask helps you lower the odds of having the COVID-19 virus. If you’re sick, it can help you reduce the spread of viruses, and if you’re healthy, it protects you from getting them.
